What can I say about the route up and down Knockacommeen? Only that my wife never wants to visit this hill again, ever!

As for the summit, the spot height is not the summit (as marked on my old OSI sheet 79). It is clearly in the area round the forestry corner, as pointed out by Jackill. Which you have to cross the fence & the gouged track to reach this point, on the bank by the trees. Linkback: https://mountainviews.ie/summit/710/comment/6560/
